In this third book, everything is coming to a close.  Tom Bohannon, his wife, and their friends are hunting for the final key so they can save the world from destruction.  They are being chased by members of the Prophet's Guard at every turn, whether they are in Israel or the ruins of Babylon.

About the Author-

Terry Brennan currently lives in the New York City area with his wife and family.  He has had a twenty-two year career in journalism and currently serves as chief administrative officer for Care for the Homeless.

My thoughts-

I thought there was a lot of great suspense and excitement in this book.

I have not read the first book in the series, but I read the second one, The Brotherhood Conspiracy.  While I suggest that you read the other books in the series first, you can still enjoy this one.  Brennan adds enough of the backstory, that you will know what is happening. 

There is a large cast of characters, but there is a large list of characters at the beginning of the book.  It listed each character and who they were.  I would have appreciated notes on whether each of the characters were in this book.  I was confused sometimes, when the characters were mentioned in the book.  There were also two handy maps.  They really helped me know how far apart the areas mentioned were.

There is a really good Author's Note at the end of the book.  It tells what is true in the story and what is not.  I liked learning about Sir General Charles Warren, the Bowery Mission, and the Demotic language.  There are website addresses mentioned, so you can learn more.

I think this is a good book.  I would recommend it to men and women alike.
